An Anderson man is behind bars after he led Redding officers on a high speed chase Wednesday morning.
It happened around 3:30am when officers tried to pull over a silver Ford F-15 pickup for a traffic violation on Canyon Road near Red Bank Road. The driver failed to stop and a pursuit began, ending on Karin Lane in Happy Valley where the driver ditched the car.
Redding Police officers and Shasta County Sheriff deputies helped in finding the suspect. With the use of a police K9, the suspect was located hiding in a camp trailer at a nearby house. He was identified as Ronald Allen, 32 years of Anderson. Allen admitted to driving the vehicle and was taken into custody.
He was booked at Shasta County Jail for felony evading, driving on a suspended license and violating the conditions of his Post Release Community Supervision agreement.
